Hello “Mad About Colouring” Meet-Up Members!!!
Thanks for stopping by to learn more about our travel-themed colouring book, Travel Between the Lines (and to enter to win a copy!)
I’d love to take a quick minute to introduce ourselves and tell (a quick version of) our story. Then I’ll tell you all about our colouring book, how you can enter to win it, and how you can get a free colouring page from our upcoming second book!
If you want to skip right to the contest info, or learn how to get a free colouring page from, our next book, you can scroll to the end of this post!
First of all, we are Geoff and Katie, a married Canadian couple from Calgary and Vancouver. Since 2006, we’ve been travelling the world, first as expatriates, then on vacation while we worked “normal” jobs in Canada, and now as permanent nomads…we’ve been full-time world travellers since November 2013!
Here’s a picture of us with a page from our current book.
If you look closely, you’ll notice the page from the book is the same scene as where we’re standing in real life! That is the entire concept of our books…we create colourable pages from real-life travel scenes!
Introducing Our Travel-Themed Colouring Book
Our first book is a collection of colourable illustrations from some of our favourite travel memories over the last 10 years. Let me show you some examples!
This first photo is of Lisbon, Portugal. Lisbon was our first stop after quitting our jobs in Canada to embark on a life of permanent travel, and is still one of our favourite cities.
Now, here is Lisbon as a “colourable”
Pretty, cool, eh?
Here’s another example…this one from Taiwan, where Geoff and I met in 2006. I took a Buddhist cooking course at the Fo Guang Shan Monastery near the city of Kaohsiung, where we lived. It was an overnight course, and we woke up early on Sunday morning to enjoy these Buddha statues. It was an amazing experience!
Our first book, published in December 2015, contains 47 colourables from 29 countries, and all of the illustrations are single-sided only.
Get a Free Page from Book #2: Colouring Mexico
We’re currently working on book #2: Colouring Mexico! I’m actually in Mexico right now, writing this post from a cute café in Oaxaca.
If you’re interested, I’d love to send you a free colourable page from our upcoming Colouring Mexico Book! You can sign-up by entering your email here:[et_bloom_inline optin_id=optin_2]
Enter to Win A Copy of Book #1: Travel Between the Lines
Okay – now the really great part.
We’re collaborating with Yvette to give away one copy of our current book, Travel Between the Lines Adult Coloring Book.
It’s pretty easy to enter…you just use the “Rafflecopter” below. There are 4 different ways to enter…you can complete just one, or you can complete all four options to earn extra entries. I know not everyone has Twitter or Instagram, so I tried to create different options so everyone can participate.
The contest runs from February 15 to March 1 at 12am (so basically, it ends at midnight on Feb 29!).
